We are happy to announce that Ankr is teaming up with OnX.finance, a DeFi platform for collateralized tokens, to hold an airdrop on ONX tokens to all ANKR token holders on major cryptocurrency exchanges.
OnX.finance was created by Ankr community members who have recognized the demand for liquidity in the Eth2 staking space. Their mission is well-aligned with ours, and fits perfectly with the further expansion of our Ethereum 2.0 staking platform, Stkr.
By conducting an airdrop of ONX tokens to ANKR holders, we are not only helping to kickstart the OnX.finance platform, but also providing long awaited staking possibilities for ANKR token holders and bootstrap liquidity for aETH — our synthetic derivative asset that is the first bond token for Ethereum 2.0 including staking rewards.
How to participate in the airdrop?
The airdrop will be conducted on major exchanges, which will be announced over the coming days.
Currently the following exchanges have already announced their support for the airdrop:
A snapshot of ANKR holdings will be taken at ONX block height 11,513,500. which will be approximately on December 24th, follow the countdown here: https://etherscan.io/block/countdown/11513500
All users holding ANKR tokens on participating exchanges at the time of the snapshot, will automatically receive ONX at 1:10,000 ratio (1 ONX = 10,000 ANKR).
The minimum number of tokens to hold to be eligible for the airdrop varies per exchange from 0-1,000 ANKR.

Why is OnX.finance important?
By incentivizing collateralized token staking, OnX.finance is addressing the growing liquidity needs of the Ethereum 2.0 network and DeFi market.
The upcoming airdrop will provide ANKR holders with a gateway to staking services, while the OnX.finance platform will also contribute to liquidity for the aETH token.
In return, ANKR holders will potentially form a new audience for the OnX.finance platform and its services.
